Assessment of Cardiac Function
This section allows you to practice the assessment of global and regional left ventricular systolic function. A series of cases are offered which review the following Focused Cardiac Ultrasound views: parasternal long-axis, parasternal short-axis, apical four chamber, and subcostal four chamber. After reviewing the different views, you are then asked to provide an estimate of the ventricular function by giving three answers: subjective assessment of function, ejection fraction and the presence of regional abnormalities. When you submit your answers, you will be provided with the correct ones, including highlights of the regional wall motion abnormalities, if present.

The goal of this section is for you to practice the assessment of the left ventricular function, and to enhance your interpretation skills. Once you have completed all the cases, you will have the option to shuffle and re-take them.
